Takeaways from Dr. Paul Deering and Dr. Deborah Zuercher's Parenting Workshop

Esteemed education experts Drs. Paul Deering and Deborah Zuercher from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa returned to campus for inspirational workshops with faculty on January 13 and parents on January 14, which focused on “The 4 L’s of Parenting a Teen: Love, Listening, Limits and Laughter.”

Five Takeways for Parents:

  • A child cannot change who or what they are, but can change their behavior or action.
  • Every day, express affection and make positive contact, including giving attention – which requires shutting off electronics.
  • Listening is hard to do. Silence is golden and “shelve” the advice.
  • Employ logical consequences for behavior or choices.
  • Laugh with them, at them and at yourself.
